New Persona 4: Dancing All Night Trailer Is Freakishly Groovy

All of the Persona 4 characters are getting there groove on in this new trailer for Dancing All Night.

The Persona series is really weird, which is why it isn’t such a crazy idea of taking the RPG characters and putting them into a dancing game. Now, that game has received a new Japanese trailer that looks freaky and groovy at the same time.

The trailer basically gives you a rundown of all of the game’s characters while they strut their stuff. It looks like there will be a heck of a lot of characters to choose from and stages to groove on. The trailer mentions some special editions of the game that will be released at the end, as well.

Persona 4: Dancing All Night is developed and published by Atlus exclusively for the PlayStation Vita. It will launch in Japan on June 25th, 2015, while a release in the states has not been confirmed as of this writing. Check out the new Japanese trailer for the game below. 

Vita Sales Heating Up Thanks To PS4’s Remote Play

Don’t count out the Vita yet!

The Vita has been almost entirely ignored lately, with Sony’s full attention being on the PlayStation 4. The Vita has failed to really gain any traction, which has resulted in the lack of any major titles being developed for the system.

However, SCEA President and CEO, Shawn Layden, recently spoke with IGN about where the Vita currently stands and remains hopeful for its future. He mentioned how the Remote Play functionality that lets PlayStation 4 owners control those games with a Vita system has boosted the Vita’s sales:

“Vita sales have actually been picking up ever since we enabled Remote Play on the handheld. There’s a lot of interest in the PS4 community to have that opportunity. We have not stood back from it. We have not started to withdraw from it. I think we’re just seeing it maybe move into a new place as far as game content goes. But I’m still keen on it, I still play [it], and I still bring it up with the development community when I see them.”

It’s understandable that Sony wants to give everything they have to the PlayStation 4, due to the fact that they are currently scrambling for exclusives for the new system as it is. However, if the Vita ends up being one that is the home of smaller, more unique titles then so be it. If we can continue to get gems like the Danganronpa series for it then the Vita will slowly but surely continue to build its loyal following.

News Judgment: JRPG ‘End of Serenity’ Hitting PSP & Vita

The PSP will never die! Natsume has announced that a new JRPG called End of Serenity will be coming to the portable platform this Summer. However, the game is being released digitally through the PlayStation Network, so Vita users will have access to the game, as well.

Natsume CEO Hiro Maekawa said the following:

Mystic Chronicles ended up being a surprise fan favorite in 2013, and we’re happy to bring players a game that will have a similar appeal to our North American audience. Inspired by the look and feel of old school, 16-bit RPGs, we feel our fans will really connect to the game’s look, feel and story.”

Condemn (OR) Condone:

I’m not gonna beat around the bush here and just say that I LOVE old-school RPGs. They had such a simple look, but at the same time they could beat you to a freakin’ pulp. If End of Serenity can give me some of that glorious old-school gameplay, then I am on board. Judgment: Condone.
